The Los Angeles Kings were outplayed in every aspect as they fell 5-3 to the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-3 on Tuesday at Nationwide Arena.
Even though the Kings stepped onto the ice with great puck movement, the Blue Jackets were just one step ahead of the Kings tonight, both defensively and offensively.
The first period started off with a goal from Dwight King at 2:42 assisted by Trevor Lewis, but the Blue Jackets answered with two of their own, one being a power play goal.
The second period had the same order. First was a Kings goal by Jeff Carter at 8:39 assisted by Mike Richards, with two Blue Jackets goals following.
At 5:19 in the third period the Blue Jackets scored their fifth goal of the night on Kings rookie goaltender Martin Jones. At 16:50 Robyn Regehr got his first goal of the season and as a King, to give the Kings their third goal of the night, but two more was out of the question it seemed.
The Kings finished their five-game road trip 1-2-1. They return to Southern California to take on the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday at Honda Center, 7:00 p.m., before Saturday’s historic Stadium Series game between the two teams at Dodgers Stadium.
